Quote: "In this game, you learn to sleep fast." Cubs manager Don Baylor, who took part in a 9 a.m. clinic Wednesday after a 4-hour, 48-minute game Tuesday that ended just before midnight. It's a fact: Atlanta manager Bobby Cox got his 1,600th win Wednesday, passing Tommy Lasorda for 14th in a career. Who's hot: San Francisco right-hander Russ Ortiz matched his career high of 12 strikeouts in a 2-0 win Wednesday, finishing August at 6-0 with a 1.31 ERA. Who's not: The Pirates, woeful in so many ways, are 3-15 in afternoon home day games, losing 11 in a row, and were outscored 30-7 in three day games during a just-completed 1-6 homestand.

NEW YORK - The Orioles go into Wednesday afternoon's game against the New York Yankees still trailing the Los Angeles Angels by 2 1/2 games  -- two games in the loss column - for the top record in the American League and home-field advantage throughout the playoffs. The Orioles have five games left to play; the Angels have four. After the Orioles were held to one hit Monday, they responded with 17 hits in Tuesday's 5-4 win . Seeing leadoff hitter Nick Markakis get four hits, including a two-run homer - his first hits since returning from taking a pitch in the right shoulder - was a good sign for the Orioles.

Orioles shortstop J.J. Hardy returned to the starting lineup for the opening game of Friday's split doubleheader, after nagging lower-back spasms had forced him to miss the previous five games. Hardy hadn't played since Friday's game in Tampa Bay, when pain in his lower back flared up and worsened throughout the game. He missed the final two games against the Rays and also sat out this week's three-game sweep in Boston when he was sent back to Baltimore to see team orthopedist Dr. Mike Jacobs.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. - Adam Jones and Nick Markakis had started every game this season - all 141 - before manager Buck Showalter decided to rest the two Orioles outfielders to start Sunday's series finale against the Tampa Bay Rays. Showalter said he saw Sunday as an opportunity to give both Jones and Markakis a day off to get ahead of any late-season physical issues. It was also a good day to give them a break on Tropicana Field's spongy turf, which can lead to some soreness on legs and backs.

Orioles manager Buck Showalter said right-hander Kevin Gausman, who held the Oakland Athletics to one run and four hits in seven innings Saturday, earned another start with the Orioles. That likely will come Thursday against the Toronto Blue Jays at Camden Yards. Gausman not only recorded his best start as a major leaguer Saturday, but he also threw 102 pitches - the most he has thrown as a professional - in the win. The Orioles have adhered to some strict pitch limits this season with the goal of having Gausman available to contribute down the stretch.

The Orioles aren't going to make a big deal of winning one game in late May against a non-division opponent, but the club's 4-2 victory over the Cleveland Indians on Sunday afternoon had the feel of one they just didn't want - or couldn't afford - to lose. A defeat would have sunk the Orioles (25-23) back to .500 and marked their 10th loss in 14 games. It also would have sent them on a 10-game road trip having lost three of four games at home to the Indians (24-27). “Very important,” first baseman Steve Pearce said about the nature of Sunday's win. “It was a great team win, and we'll carry that momentum into Milwaukee.” Perhaps it was more of a relief to the announced 37,649 who showed up at Camden Yards on a perfect, 77-degree day to see the Orioles finally win on a Sunday.

TORONTO -- The Orioles selected the contract of first baseman Dan Johnson from Triple-A Norfolk to add another left-handed bat in place of rookie outfielder Henry Urrutia, who is not with the team in Canada because of visa issues. The club placed Urrutia on the three-day restricted list while he works out in Sarasota, Fla.. After Sunday's game, the Orioles will need to make a decision on whether to bring Urrutia to Boston. If they decide to keep Johnson on the active roster, they will have to clear a 40-man spot for him once Urrutia is activated.

Orioles right-hander Freddy Garcia is expected to start Wednesday's afternoon game against San Diego. Orioles manager Buck Showalter said Sunday that he hadn't decided whether to start Garcia or right-hander Jason Hammel on Wednesday. Monday's off day gave him that luxury. But the pitchers will remain in order, with Garcia starting Wednesday and Hammel starting Friday against Tampa Bay following another off day on Thursday. Garcia, 36, will get the opportunity to start against the team that released him in spring training.

This comment is in response to Peter Schmuck 's column and this ongoing scheduling dilemma involving the Ravens and the Orioles ("Don't blame Orioles for scheduling conflict with Ravens season opener," March 20). I truly feel the Orioles organization is missing something when they are expressing concern that a midweek day game would affect revenues. It is the first day of the Jewish holiday, Rosh Hashana. All of the schools are closed in the observance of the holiday. The ballpark has the potential to be packed with families who have kids off school for the day. Jewish families who are observant are not going to go, nor in some cases watch, whether it is a day or night game, so the possibility of filling the ballpark with families and children off from school could be very positive for them.
